No Changes To Urban-Fishing Regs

The new, 2006 Urban Fishing Program brochures are available at all Arizona Department of Game & Fish offices and fishing-license dealers in Arizona. 

The blue brochures highlight many of the lake-improvement projects that were jointly completed by the department and the cities.

There are no changes to the Urban Fishing regulations from 2005—fish limits remain the same, and the price of the Class U Urban Fishing License is still only $16.

Fishing for rainbow trout has been good to excellent at most Urban Program waters, but has been slow at a few lakes. 

Urban Lakes nearby Alvord and Water Ranch have received extra trout stockings. 

Trout have been biting best on worms and corn with Power Bait working almost as well. With lake temperatures below 60 degrees, fishing for catfish, bas, and bluegill has slowed. 

Trout fishing at Green Valley lakes (Payson) continues to be good to excellent for anglers using Power Bait or worms. 

Bluegill and crappie are biting well on worms fished on the bottom or under a small bobber.
